BGN Mock Draft: Best and Worst of Picks 11-20

A review of the next 10 picks in the 2015 BGN community mock draft.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The picks from 11-20 in the 2015 BGN Community Mock Draft have all been posted. Let's take a look at some of the best and worst picks so far as determined by the approval polls.

Best pick: DeVante Parker to the Browns (84%)

Worst pick: Jalen Collins to the Dolphins (21%)

An entire recap of the 11-20 picks below. Click here to see the grades from picks 1-10.

11) Minnesota Vikings - Trae Waynes, CB, MSU - [Pick]

GM: ablesser8
Approval: 81%

Waynes seemingly solidified his status as the draft's top corner when he ran a blazing 4.31 40-yard-dash at the 2015 NFL Combine. I could easily see Mike Zimmer's team go with defense early.

12) Cleveland Browns - DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville - [Pick]

GM: djcunningham
Approval: 84%

I like Andrew Hawkins, but outside of him the Browns sure don't have much at wide receiver. Brian Hartline... Dwayne Bowe... uninspiring. Parker is the third wide out off the board at this point.

13) New Orleans Saints - Shane Ray, OLB, Mizzou - [Pick]

GM: del.champion
Approval: 62%

Lot of mixed opinions on Ray. Some like his size and production. Others are concerned by his lack of top-notch athleticism.

14) Miami Dolphins - Jalen Collins, CB, LSU - [Pick]

GM: drc242
Approval: 21%

As you can see, this wasn't really a popular pick. Many "experts" have Collins pegged as a late first or second round guy, but NFL teams might be intrigued by his size and athleticism. Boom or bust pick.

15) San Francisco 49ers - Randy Gregory, OLB, Nebraska - [Pick]

GM: SleepingDuck
Approval: 57%

The 49ers haven't been reluctant to take players with issues off the field. I could see Trent Baalke pulling the trigger and taking a shot on his ability.

16) Houston Texans - La'el Collins, OT, LSU - [Pick]

GM: JaviYL
Approval: 63%

The Texans can move Collins inside to start at guard. I don't think this is a bad pick but I think there may have been other options.

17) San Diego Chargers - Alvin "Bud" Dupree, OLB, Kentucky - [Pick]

GM: StoneColeKiller58
Approval: 79%

Dupree is one of the more intriguing pass rushers in this class. A Melvin Ingram/Jeremiah Attaochu/Dupree would be something.

18) Kansas City Chiefs - Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford - [Pick]

GM: jimmyrustler
Approval: 70%

Surprise: Andy Reid takes a player in the trenches. Chiefs don't necessarily have to reach for wide receiver here despite the need.

(Note: I originally forgot to add a poll to this post, so definitely go vote there now.)

19) Cleveland Browns - Malcom Brown, DT, Texas - [Pick]

GM: NowWhat?
Approval: 66%

It didn't hit me right away but the Browns are taking Brown. How about that. And kudos to the Cleveland GM for a unique approach to his pick explanation.

20) Philadelphia Eagles - Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State - [Pick]

GM: sports00fan00
Approval: 55%

At long last: the Eagles' pick. This one is always bound to be polarizing. Last year, the BGN Mock Draft had the Eagles taking a Pac-12 receiver. This year is no different. Judging by the comments, a lot of readers would prefer UConn's Byron Jones at cornerback instead. While I don't think Strong is a bad pick, I don't think the Eagles necessarily need to add a pass catcher in the first.
